As Coach Desjardins told the assembled media earlier today, Texas has recalled goalie Pat Nagle from Idaho today to backup Josh Robinson tomorrow against San Antonio. Cristopher Nilstorp has been practicing this week and could be ready for the weekend. His ankle has been the issue and he has been receiving intensive treatment for it.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Pat Nagle from loan with the Idaho Steelheads, the team's ECHL affiliate.

Nagle, 25, was recalled to Texas for the first time on January 23rd and dressed as the backup goalie for the Stars' two home games against the Grand Rapids Griffins last weekend. The Bloomfield, Michigan native returned to Idaho last Sunday and stopped 27-of-29 shots in the Steelheads' 3-1 loss to the Bakersfield Condors. Nagle has appeared in 23 games for Idaho this season, posting an 11-11-1 record, with a 2.79 goals-against average, a 0.920 save percentage and one shutout. He signed a standard AHL contract with the Stars on August 27, 2013.
